The littoral combat ship completed its acceptance trials -- a series of five-day trials conducted in port and at sea by the Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey.
The trials are considered the last major milestone before a ship is delivered and commissioned by the Navy.
That's scheduled to happen in November in Buffalo, New York, next to its decommissioned namesake.
